Hon Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba has disclosed this through the media NTA on 'Nigeria Policy Brief on education and Covid-19' he also added that he has received several calls from private and public universities for reopening all universities  in Nigeria

Private universities, however, have requested that they are allowed to reopen.

''We also have heard a lot of calls from several bodies who want us to resolve the industrial action which has been embarked upon by ASUU (Academic Staff Union Of Universities)  before reopening of the schools due to fact that some public universities which were not affected by ASSUU would take advantage of the strike to move ahead. But that would destroy our public universities.  So they are working on all these calls''. He Said 

He also added that they would have to do the necessary and bring them to him. He is also waiting for the other universities so he can situate them and present the PTF on Covid-19. 

He however said he can't give the NUC a deadline because his job is to wait for their inputs. This isn't a political decision alone .

If they should open the universities system,they have opened Nigeria and ASUU should call off the strike because the issues they brought before then has been resolved.  The body are making all efforts to situate the visitation panel, though that has to be gazetter and they are on it.
